Summary : The incredible tale of how ambitious oil rivals Marcus Samuel, Jr., and Henri Deterding joined forces to topple the Standard Oil empire Marcus Samuel, Jr., is an unorthodox Jewish merchant trader. Henri Deterding is a take-no-prisoners oilman. In 1889, John D. Rockefeller is at the peak of his power. Having annihilated all competition and possessing near-total domination of the market, even the U.S. government is wary of challenging the great “anaconda” of Standard Oil. The Standard never loses—that is until Samuel and Deterding team up to form Royal Dutch Shell. A riveting account of ambition, oil, and greed, Breaking Rockefeller traces Samuel’s rise from outsider to the heights of the British aristocracy, Deterding’s conquest of America, and the collapse of Rockefeller’s monopoly. The beginning of the twentieth century is a time when vast fortunes were made and lost. Taking readers through the rough and tumble of East London’s streets, the twilight turmoil of czarist Russia, to the halls of the British Parliament, and right down Broadway in New York City, Peter Doran offers a richly detailed, fresh perspective on how Samuel and Deterding beat the world’s richest man at his own game.

Summary : The history of criminal justice in the U.S. is often described as a pendulum, swinging back and forth between strict punishment and lenient rehabilitation. While this view is common wisdom, it is wrong. In Breaking the Pendulum, Philip Goodman, Joshua Page, and Michelle Phelps systematically debunk the pendulum perspective, showing that it distorts how and why criminal justice changes. The pendulum model blinds us to the blending of penal orientations, policies, and practices, as well as the struggle between actors that shapes laws, institutions, and how we think about crime, punishment, and related issues. Through a re-analysis of more than two hundred years of penal history, starting with the rise of penitentiaries in the 19th Century and ending with ongoing efforts to roll back mass incarceration, the authors offer an alternative approach to conceptualizing penal development. Their agonistic perspective posits that struggle is the motor force of criminal justice history. Punishment expands, contracts, and morphs because of contestation between real people in real contexts, not a mechanical -swing- of the pendulum. This alternative framework is far more accurate and empowering than metaphors that ignore or downplay the importance of struggle in shaping criminal justice. This clearly written, engaging book is an invaluable resource for teachers, students, and scholars seeking to understand the past, present, and future of American criminal justice. By demonstrating the central role of struggle in generating major transformations, Breaking the Pendulum encourages combatants to keep fighting to change the system.

Summary : This report examines a grass-roots movement for teacher diversity and development: paraeducator pathways into teaching. The desire to recruit a more diverse pool of teachers for urban schools and critical shortage areas has spurned a renewed interest in paraprofessional career opportunity programs. The 149 paraeducator-to-teacher programs identified in a survey by Recruiting New Teachers are described in terms of program scope and purpose; a profile of participants; overcoming barriers to participation; program models; recruiting, evaluating, and tracing participants; program budget and administration; and outlook. Sources of support for paraeducator-to-teacher programs include foundations, federal and state sponsorship, and teacher unions and paraprofessional associations. The study suggests that the paraeducator-to-teacher programs are an important influence in diversifying the teacher workforce, can be an important link between schools and communities, and can raise skill levels and earning power of their participants. A substantial bibliography is included. The appendices include profiles of nine programs; study methodology; presentation of data from the program survey; strategies to help paraeducators surmount barriers to career advancement; and workshop topics for staff.

Summary : In 1955, John D. Rockefeller III convened a committee to respond to post-World War II interest in developing improved understanding of, and relations with, countries in Asia. His family's longstanding interest in Asia had led him to travel in China and Japan after he graduated from university in 1929. The Rockefellers' deeply felt "passion for Asia" led to the founding of the Asia Society in 1956. Today, the need for better understanding of Asian cultures--political, economic, and artistic--is more urgent than ever. This beautifully produced volume reflects in photographs and words the many-sided mission of the Asia Society. Fascinating archival photographs bring the Rockefeller family's travels, philanthropic activities, social occasions, and wonderful domestic interiors to life. Important objects--sculptures, paintings, prints, screens, ceramics--all collected by members of the family, many from the Society's collection and others from museums around the country, are reproduced in full color. The text includes essays by Rockefeller family members; former Asia Society presidents; Peter Johnson, the family historian; Cynthia Altman, curator of Kykuit, the Rockefeller family estate; and Vishakha Desai, president of the Asia Society. SELLING POINTS: Documents the history and beginnings of this leading global organization whose mission of promoting the exchanges of ideas, education, and arts still holds true today Features period photographs of the Rockefeller family on their many travels to Asia and provides insight into how their collection developed 100 colour & 75 b/w illustrations

Summary : Feeling unwell and looking for a diet to cleanse your body and get your health back? If your answer is yes, the raw vegan diet may just be what you are looking for. A raw vegan diet basically means consuming a diet comprising of fresh, whole, unrefined, and plant-based foods. You will be consuming the food in its natural state, that is, without any cooking or steaming. Even if you do cook your food, it will only be heated up to a low temperature. People on the raw vegan diet believe that heating the food above a certain temperature causes them to lose its enzymes, and thus, its nutritional value. To get the best out of food, raw fooders or raw vegans, as they are often called, prefer eating their plant foods in a state which is completely raw, retaining all its nutrition. So, what exactly is the raw vegan diet? What are the foods that you can consume while on this diet? What are its benefits? Is it really good for you and should you give it a try? Read on to make an informed decision on whether you should try this diet or not.
